A New Craft!

I’ve decided to learn how to make pom-pom blankets.  I’ve looked at several youtube videos, and it looks like a practical way to use up yarn and rest my knitting muscles and joints at the same time.  I like pom-poms, they’re fun to make and add to knitted hats.

I also have shelves and shelves of yarn, some of it several years old.

I went to Lowe’s today, and a very nice employee helped me find all the things I need to make the loom.  Furring strips, nails, and corner brackets.  That’s all!  That took about an hour, driving time included, and then I came home and fooled around with the wood and the brackets.  Then I prayed and asked God if He would persuade my husband to put the brackets on the corners, because that looked pretty hard.  So I asked hubby, and he agreed, and he’s taking all the wood and hardware to his work to put it together.  Praise JESUS!!  Thank You, GOD!

Since I’m not real good at describing the loom and the blankets, I’m putting photos in this blog to show you my latest craft goal.  Here ya go:

The loom up there is being strung with yarn.  Now, the finished product:

  Aren’t they cute?  Well, more later!  Right now I’m listening to “Unshackled”.  Ever heard of that radio drama?  From the website:

Real people…real life stories…stirring, dramatic accounts of hopelessness, and the hope that changes everything. UNSHACKLED! the award-winning radio drama from Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, grips the heart with compelling and relevant stories of transformed lives.

Here’s the link to listen: https://unshackled.org/listen/browse-all-programs/

Without Jesus Christ, we are all shackled by sin — by our wrong choices, disobedience, and selfish motives. But God is at work, and the power of Christ sets us free of our bondage. We are…UNSHACKLED!
